15 hours 37 minutes
Get to know the detective in charge of Copenhagen's coldest cases in the first electrifying Department Q mystery from New York Times bestselling author Jussi Adler-Olsen.

Carl Mørck used to be one of Denmark’s best homicide detectives. Then a hail of bullets destroyed the lives of two fellow cops, and Carl—who didn’t draw his weapon—blames himself. So a promotion is the last thing he expects. But Department Q is a department of one, and Carl’s got only a stack of cold cases for company. His colleagues snicker, but Carl may have the last laugh, because one file keeps nagging at him: a liberal politician vanished five years earlier and is presumed dead. But she isn’t dead...yet.

Darkly humorous, propulsive, and atmospheric, The Keeper of Lost Causes introduces American readers to the mega-bestselling series fast becoming an international sensation.

The story kept me at the edge of my seat, the narrator was good, but it was hard to keep all the characters straight.

An excellent story and exciting until the end. The narrator's accent especially on women voices does need some work.

I felt like the characters were a bit under-developed and the story was slow to move along. I had a hard time following some dialogue between characters because the narrator's voice was similar for all male character voices.

The book is a solid thriller in the scandinavian mold. Not as good as Nesbo, but well crafted and engaging. The narrator reads well and has a good voice, but for some benighted reason thinks he needs to render dialog in a faux-Danish accent. Very distracting.

I had read the series, "The girl with the Dragon tattoo" and really enjoyed the books tremendously! I was looking for something to listen to that was along the same lines. I was pleasantly surprised, I love this book . I have already recommended it to several of my friends. I'm excited to start listening to the next book in the series!
